george walker bush. mitt romney with 60% of the white vote in the country is defeated pretty resoundingly. in the 2004 bush campaign we received 44% of the latino vote. we were having discussions in the white house in 2005 that we were were able to get majority status with latino voters in the country. if you look at the election results you can really see the republican party throwing down the graphic in the country paying off. and so, when we look at it as a party and we look at the demographic changes in the country in the mountain west. we also give consideration that some of the fastest-growing latino populations came from north carolina and not necessarily the southwest border states and states in the rocky mountain west. we have now given up as republicans five u.s. senate seats in two elections because the nominees in those seats were unqualified to serve in the united states senate from an intellectual and knowledge level and from a social extremism level. their candidacies were rejected not just by swing voters, but by a lot of republican voters as well. if you look now at the
in los angeles. let me start tonight with this. we know how mitt romney is without a script the words that come in to his head like the 47% stuff that came out in may is bad. his default switch says blame the little guy, call him a parasite. gifts, that's what the little guy wants. the older person, the hard up youth, pay up, scratch, cross their palms and they will pull the lever for you. cash and carry. smart conservatives know this is no way to treat a potential voter. it was put this way in the "new york post." romney didn't say the election came out as it did because obama's team outplayed and outfoxed his. he should have because that's the truth. he said obama won the second term through essentially bribery. i have three rules for both parties as they converge to do their jobs. respect the vote are. respect each other's offices and search hard for common ground. that's what we should be doing and guiding our country's conversation. not trashing the people who voted against you but respecting the fact that they did for your own good. washington bureau chief from mother jones and
that people voted for obama over romney was that they were concerned about climate change and they felt he was a better candidate on climate change. we had a terrible, terrible candidate on climate change and we had a candidate on climate change who needs a lot of pressure. so i feel more optimistic than i did in 2008 because in 2008 the attitude of the environmental movement was our guy just got in and we need to support him and he's going to give us the legislation that we want and we'll take his advice and we're going to be good little soldiers and now maybe i'm being overly optimistic, but i think people learn the lesson of the past four years and people now understand that what obama needs and what we need, forget what obama needs is a real independent movement with climate change at its center and it will put pressure the entire political class and there's no waiting around for obama to do it for you. >> why would you think that the next four years of a lame duck president would be more successful from your standpoint than the first four years when he's looking for reelection? >> wel

party will show up, the republican party that still believes the romney/ryan math adds up or the other republican party that understands the reality 60% of the american people at least on election day voted to put revenues on the table. that is the big question we have to look at as we look down the road. the president is going to play the long game. he's not going to play for a short-term deal. >> the president denounced the house republicans across this country as obstructionists. the country said, we hear you and they sent him back to continue being a break on the president. and almost every member of john boehner's caucus won his or her seat by a much bigger margin than mr. obama won his renewed term. look, the arithmetic is simple. if you cap at $25,000 the available deductions, you raise $1.2 trillion. a lot of money. if you cap at 50,000, you raise about as much upon as you would letting the bush tax rates expire. i don't think that's a problem. you showed the clip of patty murray saying as a negotiating ploy go off the cliff. let me give you another theory. for 40 years the dem

forgotten, the election seems like a long way in the past for some of us, but mitt romney tried to make an issue of benghazi in the hours after the attack. he jumped on the administration before we knew that four americans had been killed and that obviously backfired on him. because the information was still coming out about what happened and how deep the tragedy was. and then in the foreign policy debate, the second debate he tried to make benghazi an issue by claiming that the president hadn't called it a terrorist attack when he had used the word in his rose garden press availability on the issue. that, too, backfired. it's interesting, too, in the days following that he stopped -- mitt romney stopped talking about it. i think that is a reflection of the fact that it was an issue that wasn't working for him. and that might be a cautionary tale for the republicans who are pursuing this today. >> i think he stopped talking about it after the debate when he was called out on it. john, we have the president in thailand today asked about reaching a deal to avoid the fiscal cliff. here's w
not be a politic issue so the president, again, the olitics of for country. lou: it's pretty clear that mitt romney made a tremendous mistake in not taking the initiative on benghazi, despite all that occurred in the debate. he had every pportuty in the third debate to rive that issue for work and did not. >> he absoluty did. my colleague and i made that same point before the election. we said, if he did not do it he would not be president. he didn't do it. he is a president. you can't bear to be cautious in politics, especially in the most especially when you have the facts in your side. lou: a lot of the folks said that this docile lap dog liberal national media would oy have taken up the issue had governor romney done so. and, of course, that's history. no sense mopping yarborough's with it here tonight to ut the fact is there is some much there that the national media has not gone after that the republican party has not gone after. this white house has refused to bestraightforward. obviously running of the clock is the expression. >> right. lou: and one of e few things that is transparent about
similar to what governor romney talked b let's cap expenditures or deductions to increase revenue and focus on spending. >> mike: his plan called for a 50,000 cap you can take reductions whether it was charity, business deduction, but you had up to $50,000 above that you weren't going to get the deduction is that the way it works? >> exactly. if we stay focused on the revenue side it makes it look as if there's appearance of win for with the white house. we don't need a win for the white house. we don't need a win for the congress. we need a win for the american people. i ran for congress because i was concerned about the debt and deficit in this country. there's talk about this fiscal cliff, we might have already been over the cliff now we are trying to determine what type of landing we are going to have when we land. is it going to be soft or hard? it can be softer if we do the right things that cause economic growth that put americans back to work and gets control over spending. >> mike: the president has been saying i want to find ways to compromise. is there anything specific
making stupid comments. >> chris: so what was stupid about what romney said? >> i am proud of the campaign across the country but i reject what he said. >> you don't have to insult people, we are ans spir rationable party. let democrat say degrok rafy is destiny and we'll divide people by race and gender and class. this is not just a marketing campaign. >> chris: governor walker take look at the exit poll from election night. 43% said romney. how do republicans convince the middle class you are looking out for them? >> we see them in governorship. you have 30 states with republican governors. there is a trust factor there. we need to be a party that talk about it and we need to take the message, a winning message. i bet the republican governors and we take it and we go out to where people are. we have a message that works for young people and works for people that come to country from other countries. everyone in the country living their piece of the american dream. it starts with the governors as great messengers. >> chris: governor gipped jindjindal,what are about the de
agree with scott, you know, the president sort of made fun of mitt romney's five-point plan, but i tell you what, if the democrats are willing to give on tax simplification, and some people will pay more taxes, and then they bring a more serious proposal on the table to entitlement reform, there is a deal that can be had. i think both the president and speaker boehner have indicated they're willing to give that a shot. >> thank you, gentlemen. good to see both of you and thanks for your work on behalf of the american people. congressman steve nortorette of ohio and congressman john ridgelle from virginia. >>> well, it could still push this economy over the edge. what president obama can do in his second term, next. is, nyquil doesn't unstuff your nose. what?
